Duterte crony Dennis Uy eyeing to get upper hand in Davao port

 

Chelsea Logistics Holdings Corp. expects to obtain original proponent status from the Philippine Ports Authority for its P16 billion proposal to develop, operate and maintain the Davao Sasa Port.

“We are looking to get OPS anytime soon if our offer will meet the PPA requirement,” said Chryss Alfonsus Damuy, president and chief executive officer of CLC.

Phase 1 of CLC’s proposed development includes the rehabilitation of the existing port while phase 2 involves the expansion of capacity, Damuy said.

The National Economic and Development Authority approved the modernization of the Davao Sasa Port under the Aquino administration’s public private partnership scheme.

Sasa Port is actually designed for break bulk cargo vessels, which is vital to the economy of Davao City.

About 500,000 metric tons of steel, wheat, fertilizer, motor vehicles, heavy equipment and other cargo not suitable for containers went through the Sasa Port in 2014.

The Sasa port currently has a capacity of 700,000 twenty-foot equivalent units.
